New TV Crime Show

Forget small-time Tony Soprano: it's time to meet our own "Riviera" Ray Wooley:

"Justin Rowlatt meets 'Riviera' Ray Woolley who escaped from an open prison after booking himself a taxi when he was told to pay back nearly £10 million to the government. Woolley, who had worked as a pipe welder near Stoke-on-Trent, was convicted of £38 million of VAT fraud."

10.15pm on Sunday.

PS Obviously it's good that Panorama is covering the VAT fraud scandal: the more people that know about it, the better. But do they have to turn everything into a cheap thriller? And will they be asking the right questions about Brown's failure to grip this?
